World Cup technique for everyone, basics.
There is so much to be learned from this one photo. What I see and hear all the time from coaches on the slopes: Get your arms forward? Not the right message! Get your arms wide and feel the lateral body relationship to the forces to balance better. Notice how light the skis are on the snow, this is the High C part of the arc, no pressure needed here so the skis are tipped, but light. Tipping and creating angles is the right thing to do in the High C part of an arc.
